Dear Sir or Madam,

The Ugandan Community in the Netherlands (UCN) cordially invites you to attend the UCN day on the 26th of August 2017 in Amsterdam.

The main goal of this annual calendar event is to foster a Dutch-Uganda Diaspora social and business interaction forum. The UCN day therefore provides a hub for individuals and organizations that have Uganda and Ugandans living in the Netherlands on their agenda. Just like last year, the theme of the event is: Living a healthy and productive life in the Diaspora. The highlights of the day will be a mini marathon for all, plus a lot of cultural and sporting activities from the Ugandan community. The event will further feature among others business exhibitions, personalized B2B matchmaking, Products and services market boosting, profitable networking, business and investment pitching, investor lobbying, charitable works plotting and many more.

On behalf of the Ugandan Community in the Netherlands, I hope that you will participate on this day either as a sponsor, exhibitor or as a visitor. You are encouraged to confirm participation by 29th July 2017.

Yours truly, Derrick Senyonjo. General Secretary – UCN +31 628472810
